Why is the Caribbean such a fantastic place to sail?
The answer is simply the weather…… and the fact that when Europe and North America are locked into cold winter weather the Caribbean offers weather that is at its very best and ideal for sailing.
Temperatures throughout the Caribbean between December and June are what you have always imagined the tropics to be… sunshine and warm breezes.
With temperatures averaging about 75-80°F, 24-25°C and an almost constant easterly breeze averaging 10-15 kts it is a very comfortable climate.
Added to that the sea temperature is only 3-4 degrees less that the air temperature, making swimming both surprisingly pleasant and refreshing.
Both myself and Summer Breeze have been sailing in the Caribbean for many years and it is an area I have never grown tired of sailing.
